Feel like deep-diving into the blood and guts of indie filmmaking, or visiting the technological horizons of storytelling in an anxious 21st century? That's here too.
Maybe you just want some good music? Or perhaps you'd like to catch RZA bringing it all back home with a live soundtrack performance to the 1978 martial arts classic, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin? VIFF's got you covered.
All of this comes, naturally, with a spectacular program of short and feature films, world premieres, spotlights, and a red carpet or three, beginning on September 27 with the Jesse Eisenberg/Kim Nguyen collaboration The Hummingbird Project.
Until then, stick with the Straight for news, reviews, previews, features, and more.
